About Toby & Lucy Rider

It is a dream come true owning a property in the French Alps and we are so happy to be able to share it with others. We love the outdoors and the Alps are perfect with so much to offer. We hope you can get as much pleasure from the apartment, and the beautiful town of St Gervais as we do time and again.

Toby & Lucy Rider purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Toby & Lucy Rider chose Saint-Gervais-les-Bains

A beautiful alpine town that is buzzing with activity in both the winter and summer. We fell in love with the apartment the moment we saw it. The town has everything we could wish for whilst keeping a traditional authentic character. The skiing is superb and the summer activities are endless and with Mont Blanc overlooking you, this is the Alps at their best.

What makes this apartment unique

We have tried to create a comfortable home with practical features such as the ski locker, large cloakroom and washer/dryer. The bedrooms are fitted to a high standard with comfortable, supportive mattresses and quality bedding, something often missing from ski properties. The shops and restaurants are on the doorstep and access to the slopes is quick and easy with the ski shuttle bus.

Lovely apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 2 adults 3 children had a great holiday here. The apartment was clean , well equipped and plenty of storage and space. Lovely views . Very close to all amenities in the village. We drove to the free car park each morning to take the gondola up as this suited us. Great ski and snowboard tuition with ESF . Recommend the lovely indoor pool in St.Gervais too , especially good for children. Will definitely be back! Many thanks .

This is a wonderful apartment with loads of space and right in the centre of town - lovely to be able to nip out for fresh bread in the morning. Close to bus stop for main Bettex lift and near to supermarket and lots of restaurant - perfect!

St Gervais
Car: recommended


Geneva is the closest airport to St Gervais (90km). If you book your flights well in advance you can get exceptional deals. Transfers by Car Hire are fast and easy way to get to St Gervais. Otherwise by bus there are daily services between Geneva and St Gervais using the coach company SAT. Costs approximately €30 per person per single trip and takes 2 hrs. You can use many private taxi firms who also offer shared mini buses. There are good TGV train links in the direct from Paris.


Chamonix is a 25 minute drive away.

Further Details:

In winter the family-friendly village, more into health and beauty than hedonism, Saint Gervais isn't known for its wild nightlife. You can always head to nearby Megève if that's what you fancy, but here you'll be treated to a more sedate selection of quality bars and restaurants, along with a casino and nightclub. As well as the endless beauty treatments available at the spa, there are plenty of après-ski activities on offer here including snowshoeing, paragliding, horse riding and ice-skating.

Saint Gervais is a vibrant town during the summer months with plenty on offer. Situated at the foot of Mont Blanc the scenery is stunning and a great place to be based to explore the surrounding area. A great way to see Mont Blanc is to go on the tramway up to Nid d’Aigle taking you through the Alpine forests and meadows reaching the foot of Bionnassay Glacier.

For those who wish to relax and unwind on holiday there is the famous Saint Gervais thermal spa with balneotherapy, beauty and medical treatments. The Spa is rated as the 2nd best Medical Spa in France for both Dermatological and Respiratory Tract complaints. What’s more there is a vast range of outdoor activities including mountain biking, walking, paragliding, canyoning, rock climbing, swimming, golf, ice-skating rink and mini golf to list but a few.
